I have posted a few times here and have always received great advice. I am struggling a lot with my treatment. I switched to T3 only but reacted poorly to the fillers in Cytomel (combined with being under medicated). I had to switch back to NDT, which I also do not feel well on, more weight gain, foggy thinking, etc. I want to try T3 only again but need a little more guidance on how to go about it. My doctor is ordering me compounded T3 with coconut oil and chicory root as the only filler (pure, NOT sustained release). I am on 3 grains of WP Thyroid currently. When I tried cytomel I started at 25mcg from 3 grains of WP and felt absolutely awful! What is a good starting point with T3 only? How quickly can I work up?
I have low cortisol and my T3 and T4 are low even on 3 gains of WP, with a suppressed TSH. My doctor will not raise WP as he does not want to supress TSH further, he is willing to add T3 or go T3 only.
Would love any advice!
